Derwent Hunter


Relax onboard the graceful tall ship Derwent Hunter and experience the beauty of the magnificent Great Barrier Reef as you sail through the Whitsundays Islands. Visit a private mooring at Langford Reef where you can swim in the crystal clear waters, snorkel the fringing coral reefs and walk ashore on the Whitsundays only sandy cay. Whilst onboard the Derwent Hunter morning tea and a smorgasboard lunch will be served, and there is also a licensed bar available where you can buy a beer or wine and relax while the crew raise the sails and head back to shore across the Whitsunday Passage.

If you are short on time, than a day spent on the Derwent Hunter is an ideal itinerary inclusion on your next family holiday or romantic getaway to Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays.

Derwent Hunter will be touring south and returning to her old stomping grounds of Hobart for a southern sabbatical and promotional cruise. Derwent Hunter will return to northern waters later in 2020.
